You’d expect to be awestruck paragliding over the pyramids in Giza, Egypt, but adrenaline junkie, Yanis Terzis, saw something he hadn’t expected.
Carvings in the stone can be seen right at the very top.
However, rather than ancient messages carved into the stone as it was hoisted in place around 4,500 years ago, it seems they’re a little more recent.
According to Reddit, rather than carvings that have weathered a desert climate for millenia, it’s graffiti “written by people who climbed the pyramids” more recently.
Rules and regulations are now in place to protect one of the Seven Wonders of the Ancient World.
“The graffiti pre-dates the rules set in place against climbing,” one commenter on X eplained.
These only officially came into effect in November 2019.
The penalty is at least one month’s imprisonment and/or a fine between EGP 10,000 ($620) and EGP 100,000 ($6,200).
A robot inside the Great Pyramid has also been able to go where humans can’t reach and reveal its secrets with hidden footage.
